The restoration work encompassed the whole building. The flagship store extends over in five floors, each featuring a different atmosphere, whereby the different functions blend and dissolve to give the customer a unique experience of discovery, shopping and gastronomy. The large staircase connecting the five floors serves to give a sense of unity to the environments, and has been interpreted as a single large shelf. The interior is inspired by Peter Greenaway’s cult film »The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover«. At the level of visual communication, the entire building is conceived and focused on the contrast between kitchens and dining rooms.
